The Service Employees International Union (SEIU) was founded in 1921 as a union of flat janitors. Over the years it has grown in size and scope, and now comprises three divisions: healthcare, property services, and public services. The photographs found in this collection were taken between 1947 and 2004 at SEIU International Conventions, which occur every four years (coinciding with United States presidential election years). The photographs are each panoramas depicting numerous individuals, including both union staff and officials as well as rank-and-file members.
